Dystonia Awareness Month

Dystonia Awareness Month September 2019 

Dystonia Awareness Month aims to raise awareness of dystonia – a neurological movement disorder which causes uncontrollable movements, twisting or muscles spasms as well as pain. There are different forms of dystonia affecting adults or children.

If you would like to help spread awareness during the awareness month there are many ways you can achieve this.

Dystonia Awareness Month 2014

In 2014 we had a very first National Dystonia Awareness Month. A Dystonia website was set up and a Facebook page which ran during the awareness month. Group members joined in and helped spread the word and raise awareness. The awareness website had info on Dystonia, updates and events, stories of several sufferers, an awareness video and links to further information and support groups.
